The Alpine area is a unique territory with outstanding nature and landscapes and impressive cultural diversity. The sixth Report on the State of the Alps (RSA 6) describes the status of Green Economy approaches by presenting selected topics and indicators. Several opportunities for the development of a Green Economy in the Alpine area have been identified based on this analysis. Despite some progress, there is a strong need to strengthen the efforts to fully integrate environmental and social aspects into economic policies. 

The conference will present the RSA6 recommendations, selected results and pioneering Good Practice Examples for a greening of the economy in the Alps. Participants will discuss how specific Green Economy approaches can be implemented and will develop first ideas for an Action Programme. 

Conference languages are German, French, Italian and Slovenian. Simultaneous interpretation into all languages will be provided for the plenary sessions. Panels will mainly take place in English, selected interpretation will be provided.
